    What are core temperatures with small FFT torture?
    The file system may become corrupted due to bad memory settings, it is recommended to run memtest86+ before attempting to run windows. At least run a feww passes of test #5, press c, 1, 3, 5, enter, 0 (if I remember correctly).

    Core temps rise up to 58c. I will run Memtest when I return home from my daughters lacrosse practice.

    I left the computer running small FFT while I am out.

    Core temps low enough to run IBT/LinX, run 5 loops with 2048/3076MB and see what GFlops you get.

    Here's what I've done thus far. Feeling good about my o/c.

    - Ran Memtest #5 10 passes - 0 errors
    - Ran P95 Small FFT for 2 hours - Passed
    - Ran P95 Large FFT for 2 hours - Passed
    - Ran P95 Blend for 8 hours - Passed
    - Ran IBT 5 loops 2048 - 50 Gflops - Success
    - Ran IBT 5 loops 3076 - 52 Gflops - Success

    Shall we go higher?

    Yeah push it on up 10 - 20 MHz and test...

    Ok. Is it necessary to run P95 for 12 hours (2 Small FFT, 2 Large FFT, 8 Blend) each 20 mhz? I'm hoping not.

    So, lodingi, what has your endeavour to "Hit the elusive 4.0" achieved ?

    With everything gone quiet for a while now, it must be assumed that you have had either, a great success, or, a complete failure so far, and are just bashful about telling us !

    Either way, remember that reporting your experiences is most important to others who may also want to chase the elusive 4GHz overclock ?

    Hi Jimmor. I have not gotten to 4.0 just yet. I had gotten to 3.9, but didn't get it stable. I backed down to 3.8 stable until the weekend.

    I travel during the week, so I am home Friday thru Sunday only. That is why my thread goes dark for periods of time.

    I do appreciate everyone's help, and I will resume my quest this evening.
